Hi,

I have a GCP and I'd like to know more about the Power Supply. I can't use the provided transformer because it is 110V and I live in Europe.
I plugged another 9V transformer with a DC output.. and the pedal works, and yet AC is written on the provided transformer and on the GCP input.

So my question is: Can I use a transformer with a DC output? Will I run into problems if I plug this transformer for each use of the GCP?

Cheers,
Jérémy

The Ground Control Pro does ship with a 9VAC power supply but it will accept 9VDC with no problems and the polarity doesn't even matter. Use a power supply that can provide at least about 500mA, and has a 2.5mm x 5.5mm barrel connector.

Good Luck!

Thank you so much! I'll just cut the connector from the shipped power supply and do some re-wiring work :-)
